The reaction 40Ca(d, p)41Ca has been studied with a resolution ≦ 30 keV. Excitation functions for the first three strong states have been measured in the energy interval 9.80 to 12.12 MeV. Cross section fluctuations are found to be entirely within statistics, i.e. < 5 %, and it is concluded that σCN(θ)/(2Jf+1) < 5 μb/sr. Differential cross sections have been measured for elastic scattering, and the (d, p) transitions to the ground state and the strong single-particle states at E* = 1.949, 2.471, 3.623 and 3.954 MeV at Ed = 12.00 MeV and, over a limited angular range, at Ed = 11.00 MeV. The angular distributions have been analysed by the DWBA method and spectroscopic factors have been determined. It is suggested that the 3.623 MeV state may be the third 3 2- state predicted by Gerace and Green rather than 1 2- as assigned by earlier studies.
